You Make Happiness Bloom, Even if you are a Mouse.....

Coffee of the Day - White Chocolate Mousse

Hooray, it's Friday! and it's just so stinkin' gorgeous outside! my momma robin friend from the spring came back to her nest on our front door to say hello. She is sitting there, happy as a little clam, so that is a great way to begin this day, I can tell ya! Our dear friends from Camp have their wedding rehearsal & dinner this evening, so that is exciting! with David officiating the service and Tyler as one of the groomsmen, it's a weekend full of happy happy love! I know I can't attend, but I am thrilled for the couple just the same.

I hope you have something spectacular planned for this weekend. even if it's just hanging out, you can make it spectacular just by cherishing the ones you're with! :)

 I'm sharing a card using a cute freebie image offered over on the Digi Darla challenge blog. papers are Basic Grey Lemonade, senti is Create with TLC, ribbon rose is made from May Arts satin, and buttons are from my stash. the flower center is covered in distress stickles.

Very Pretty! I love the layers and the colors are all awesome together. I love how you did the sentiment too. Great use of the image.

Cheri said...

The paper layers on here are amazing. It's an art form to be able to layer all those different papers together and have it turn out so well. Thanks for sharing it with us on the 3 Girl JAM "Kraft with Ribbon" challenge.
